SPECIAL Events & SPORTING EVENTS

MUSIC USED AT SPECIAL EVENTS & SPORTING EVENTS

Music often plays a unique role at special events, either as a soundtrack to a performance or production or as the backdrop for dancing, mingling and creating the right atmosphere.

If you are holding a special event or sporting event using recorded music, you need the permission of the owners of the music you use. You can obtain this permission by applying for either a Special Event Licence or a Sporting Event Licence.

This licence applies for ticketed events and events that are by invitation only with no admission fee.

 

Ticketed Special Event 1.65% of Gross Sums Paid for Admission x Music Use Percentage, subject to a minimum fee of $75.00 + GST
Special Event No Admission Fee 2% of Gross Expenditure on Performers at the Event, subject to a minimum fee of $75.00 + GST
Sporting Event 0.04 cents per person admitted to each day at each event
